“Beautiful appartment”
Reviewed 24 January 2016 for a stay in January 2016

Wonderful appartment with everything you could possibly need. Lovely views of the Medici Chapel and The Duomo. Beautifully furnished with a real feeling of grandeur. Mario has shown a lot of attention to detail. The location is perfect, 5 minutes from SMN train station. Good bars, restaurants and all the sights within easy walking distance. Couldn't possibly stay anywhere else if we come back to Florence...and we will come back. Much more comfortable than a hotel, book it now!

“Wonderful apartment in the center of history”
Reviewed 3 November 2015 for a stay in October 2015

For our first trip to Florence of 5 nights, we chose this wonderful apartment just in the center of the city, and in the center of history. Everything to visit is within walking distance, so no need of any means of public transport... We took wonderful pictures of the Dom just at the window of the dining room, fantastic!
Mario the owner was very kind waiting for our arrival almost at midnight, on his day of birthday! And he didn't hesitate to give us all the tips on how to make our stay an enjoyable one, from visit to museums to local markets where to buy fresh foodstuffs.
The apartment itself is very nice with all modern amentities as described on website. The beds are comfortable enough, and the kitchen, shower work very well.
Thank you Mario! We'll certainly come back in the future or maybe visit your gallery in Luca next time we come to Toscany. Ciao!

“The perfect apartment in central Florence”
Reviewed 3 November 2015 for a stay in September 2015

We just loved Corilla Olimpica's House! If you are looking for an authentic, beautiful apartment in the heart of Florence you won't do better than this! The rooms are large and beautifully furnished. The kitchen and bathroom are modern and everything works. The kitchen window offers beautiful views over the dome of San Lorenzo and if you lean out of the sitting room windows, you'll see the Duomo. The Mercato Centrale is nearby and is a wonderful place to stock up with high quality supplies. There are also lots of lovely bars and restaurants nearby if you don't feel like cooking. Dr Mario Cenni is a wonderful host - he met us at the train station and accompanied us to the apartment to explain details like light switches, gas supply, dishwasher and washing machine.
This apartment is very good value for money. We highly recommend it.

“Perfect”
Reviewed 26 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

Pros:
- Great location. We walked with 2 roll-along suitcases from the train station no problem. Florence is not a sprawling mass so it was easy to get everywhere on foot from the apartment's location.
- The owner is an absolute pleasure to deal with. Mario escorted us from the train station and was careful to explain the apartment, it's history and how to get the most from our stay.
- Brilliantly equipped, very spacious apartment furnished and decorated in a Florentine style of times gone. The rental price was exceptional value in our view.
- The bells...just throw the windows open in the morning and lay a while in bed listening to the bells of Duomo. Very memorable.
- Great view from the shower!

Cons:
- Just that the air-con unit in the main bedroom would not work for us (the one in the second bedroom was fine). Guess it just needs fixing.

Tips
- Visit the the little cafe just down the road for breakfast. Right out of the exit door then follow the laneway a short walk until you get to the small piazza...the cafe is in the corner. It served great coffee and pastries at cheap prices.
- Buy your tickets to see 'David' the day before your intended visit.
- Only scale the Duomo dome if you are fit and don't mind confined spaces.

Dear J.,

thank you so much J. for your review, I'm happy for you enjoyed your stay. Only, it would have helped if you had told me to fix that problem. The security interruptor on the wall was switched off, sorry.

I hope to see you again in Florence to give the best hospitality I can,

cheers, Mario
